Your 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees are in. Righting one among its many, many, many wrongs, the Hall has nominated Janet Jackson as soon as once more (after snubbing her for this yr’s class, for some egregious purpose, following earlier nominations) as a result of the most recent Year of Janet should rightfully prolong into 2019. Also up once more are Radiohead — even supposing they need completely nothing to do with the Hall — Rage Against the Machine, the Cure, Kraftwerk, MC5, Rufus & Chaka Khan, LL Cool J, and the Zombies. First-time nominees this yr embody solo Stevie Nicks (she’s already in with Fleetwood Mac), Devo, Def Leppard, Roxy Music, Todd Rundgren, and John Prine. Alas, no artists of their first yr of eligibility made the lower, which is unhealthy information for rap: no Outkast, Fugees, Snoop Dogg, or the Roots. But additionally no Beck, Jeff Buckley, or Dave Matthews Band. Someone verify on Lady Bird! The 2019 inductees shall be introduced in December, and as soon as once more, followers have a vote within the matter. Only the second-most necessary vote of your yr, folks!
